Cask @ Wenlock Arms, Hoxton Lovely looking, garnet black with a fine light tan head. Aroma is of caramel, toffee and a hint of smoke. Flavour is molasses, some coffee and even a touch of tar. Mouthfeel is thin and a little disappointing.

Has strong bitter metallic notes and yet is thin and watery at the same time. I experienced it well kept but it was still very unpleasant, beers like this only keep going because of the tied houses system. Avoid.

McNeillR (2297) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 27, 2016
Dark ruby brown, thin tan ringed head and no lacing. Nose is non existent, some roast and glass cleaner. Initial taste is watery, tinny and oddly tart. Finishes much the same. Thin as the White Duke. Pathetically cellared, no idea how old it is. #WouldLikeToReRate

hirigalzkar (3065) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 24, 2016
Cask @ Akkurat. Dry mild ale with notes of salmiak, chocolate and mild spices. The unusually low sweetness makes it unblanced.

Cask at GBBF Saturday, 13/08/2016. A nutty brown coloured pour with reddy hues and a sticky beige head. Aroma is sweet vanilla, plum jam, nutty malts, hint of toffee, fruit cake. Flavour is composed of sweet earthy nuts, plum jam, tangy fruit. Maybe past its best, Palate is watery, semi sweet, vanilla, lowish carbonation. Decent.
